Fishing

 
 

Jay shows you how it can be done. My caretaker is a great fisherman (and so are his children) who can swear by this private area of the pond as a fisherman's paradise for panfish, perch, largemouth bass and northern pike both in the summer and on the ice in winter.

Our latest pictures of Jay’s son were taken in February 2017. What a catch of bluegills!

 

Treat yourself to fishing on the pond!

Wolf River Area

The Wolf River in Wisconsin is well known for it's great fishing, and New London is in the middle of all the action. Walleye and white bass fill the river both spring and fall. Catfish, smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing is quite good all summer and there is a good population of northern pike and even a few Muskie in the area. There is also a good resident population of walleye, bluegill and crappie in area back-waters. Fall fishing on the Wolf River is popular for walleyes, smallmouth bass and crappies.”

Wolf River State Wildlife Area


Water shapes Winnebago County. This 1,620-acre property is a good example of how water is captured, filtered and renewed by vast wetlands. The bird and animal life here is extensive. The Wolf River SWA offers the birder good opportunities to experience the Wolf River and its delta on Lake Poygan by kayak or canoe. Ashore, there are hiking trails that take you close to the river and into marshy areas. This property is a favorite with anglers and hunters. In dry years, spring and fall shorebirds can be numerous here as they search the mudflats for insects. Overhead, soaring Bald Eagles and Osprey hunt for fish.

Waupaca County Sturgeon Trail

In April and May, Lake Sturgeon spawn here in this shallow, rocky stretch of the Wolf River. The Sturgeon is Wisconsin’s oldest and largest fish. In 2001, the Wisconsin DNR paved a half-mile of surface trail along the river to make it easy and safe for people to observe these ancient creatures. The site is completely accessible. While you’re in the area, look for waterfowl during spring and fall migrations, and scan the trees for songbirds. Plans call for trail expansion in the future. This site is always good for wildlife viewing, even when the sturgeon viewing season ends.
